Decision Making for the Experienced Backcountry Traveler

Friends of NWAC brings us video from their recent event where Margaret Wheeler talks about Decision Making for the Experienced Backcountry Traveler. Thanks!

A multi-disciplined educational experience to teach and practice using the necessary tools required for good decision making in a complex backcountry setting. A lecture was followed by a small group exercise putting these skills into practice. A review of the exercise followed as well as a review of the outcome of the case studied.

Snowchasers Ep1 Hits Stevens, Summit & Crystal

I love seeing how the pros hit our local mountains. Wish I could ride like them! :)

SnowChasers is a project produced by Film Maker Chris King out of Seattle,WA and Professional Skier Tyler Ceccanti out of Lake Tapps, WA. The goal of the web series is to show not only the skiing available in the Pacific Northwest but also the routine of a long winter in the eyes of a professional skier, and how hectic a schedule can be. Join us in the 1st episode as we hit the terrain parks of Summit-at-Snoqualmie and Stevens Pass, the backcountry skiing of Japan, and finally some late season powder at Crystal Mountain.
